the 770 show • eric william carroll

for the 770 show, eric william carroll foraged through the adobe book store stacks in search of old science textbooks. he likes how photography is used in a "matter-of-fact information delivery service" in those kinds of books. in the end, the beauty of the cover of "the milky way" by bart & priscilla bok won out. eric's been working on his own grand unification theory through images, both found and made, and he is continually drawn to idea of the 'cosmic sneeze'.
